Shout Outs

Shout outs to the entire Jane Ball Staff for their flexibility last week with the ISTEP testing.

In addition thank you to all the staff who brought in goodies last week!

Thank you Bea for hosting a wonderful get together Friday night! The food was amazing!

Please keep the following in your thoughts and prayers:

Please keep in your prayers the students and families affected by the untimely death of Alton Bradley.

April Severs on the loss of her father

Christina Schrieber on the loss of her mother

Jean Ohlencamp on the loss of her father.

This has been a tough week for the Hanover family. We have an amazing school family that bonds together to help us get through these tough times. If any students or staff need support dealing with this difficult time please reach out to me or Leslie. Thanks to all of you!


Next week we will be on ISTEP schedule on Monday only. Only Grade 4 tests on Tuesday.

IREAD will be starting next Thursday and Friday for grade 3.

Board Meeting Change

This Tuesday's Board meeting will be in the HS cafeteria at 6pm . We will be recognizing the Math Bowl Team.

Teacher Evaluations

I will be sending out a google doc sign up for the final observation for teachers. Please remember I will need a pre-observation form filled out prior to your lesson. You need to do this form on the SFS website. Also when signing up for your observation please also sign up for the post conference. I will be closing the sign ups next Friday. After that you will need to go through LORI to make any changes on my schedule.

Please don't hesitate to ask questions and get involved with this process. I am happy to set up meetings to help you as we get used to this new system.
